THE MAN WITH THE GREEN SUITCASE

3 Jan

This is one of those books where if you think you’re going to take just a taste then put it down to devour later, think again. Such was the case with me. I received this book whilst in the middle of reading another book. I read the back cover and skimmed the pages, as per my usual M.O., in anticipation of reading it after I’d finished the one I already started. But then I made the colossal mistake of reading the first few pages. I was immediately drawn into the lives of the characters, main ones as well as back-story characters. I couldn’t get out even if I wanted to.

I like this author’s writing style. It is her first novel written in first person/present tense, and while the man with the green suitcase is the main character, he is not the focus of the telling. This homeless old man steps back into the shadows whilst giving center stage to the secondary characters who shine.

“The old man comes into people’s lives because it is important for them to experience the visions that he is somehow able to show them-visions that even he doesn’t understand. But whoever he connects with will go through a transformation that will change the course of their life, for better or worse. The old man has no memory of who he is or even what the suitcase holds.” (partial blurb/back cover)Image

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
